My company forces Active Desktop upon everybody so that it can display a (monthly-rotated) corporate wallpaper.jpg.
Problem is, some computers (including my laptop) somehow experienced some errors resulting in the dreaded "Active Desktop Recovery" screen to show up... and clicking the "Restore My Active Desktop" button always resulted in "Internet Explorer Script Error".
Various workarounds I found in the Internet either does not work or requires me to change the theme first to something else... and the latter I can't do because the Desktop Settings screen is locked via GPO.
As it happens, due to the nature of the programs I use, I'm granted Administrator-level access on my computer.
The question is:
How do I fix my situation?
Note: I don't need to put on my own wallpaper, but watching the "Active Desktop Recovery" screen (with its BLANK WHITE!!1! OH MY EYES!1!!one!eleven!! background) gets tiresome. I'm quite happy with the corporate wallpaper. I just need to somehow 'recover' my Active Desktop.
- OS: Windows XP Professional SP3 (yeah, company's too afraid to even experiment with Windows 7)
- Antivirus: Symantec Endpoint Protection
